This is a stock I made for my Remington 700 7mm mag action and barrel. First stock I’ve made, pretty happy with the results. Made it with walnut and birch ply’s. I did most of the in-letting with hand tools. I glass bedded the action and finished with multiple coats of Birchwood Casey tru oil. I’ve put about 10 rounds through it so far, it shot pretty good and that’s before I glass bedded the action.

Impressive, looks very nice. I like the two contrasting woods, and that glossy smooth finish.

Thanks guys! I haven’t taken on a large project in quite awhile until this one. It was nice to spend some time in the woodshop again. Although I have been working with my oldest son on a project too. That is even more rewarding.

Beautiful looking stock. The wood contrasts really well making it stand out with the finish you use. Excellent job. Mel

Thanks guys! Being my first one it was a little intimidating, but now that it’s finished I’d definitely make another. There are a few things I would do a little different, but I guess you have that with any project.

Intimidating for sure! I had though about doing something like that but was too “chicken” to even begin. I’ve seen how they make them in factories with pattern lathes and figured I’d need a tool like that, or fail.

Second thought was to buy both a walnut and birch manufactured stock, slice them up, then swap the bits 8^)

You did a great job on a difficult project!
